Ductal® Sunshade canopies for Public Housing


Citadis, the organization mandated by the Vaucluse General Council to delegate the supervision of public works, hired Olivier Souquet of DeSo Architectes Associés for the urban restoration of a three-floor building with four public housing units (T2-T4). To be better integrated in the city and be part of the building's continuity, Olivier Souquet selected pigmented Ductal® with organic fibres for its mineral appearance. The building's façades are adorned with perforated sunshade canopies made of Ductal® with organic fibres. They ensure sunlight filtration while producing a subtle light and shadow effect on the façade.
